Moonrise behind the Sacré Cœur basilica in Paris

IG :

Hello here is a timelapse I made of the full moon rising behind the Sacré Cœur basilica in Paris.

The Moon looks particularly big because the picture was taken at 11km distance with a 600mm lens. You can see the turbulence of the air due to this distance. I had to stabilize the timelapse because the turbulences were so important that the image was shifted by 30% in all directions...

I used the same settings from the beginning to the end because I was too afraid to touch the camera and completely off center the sacred heart. The pictures were taken on November 9th.

Settings : ISO-800 - F/6.3 - 1/30 sec
Equipment : Canon 750D - Tamron 150-600mm

Timelape: The Exploding Crab Nebula
Timelapse video URL:

It is rare and exciting to see any changes in astronomical objects outside of our solar system. However, incredibly, this time lapse animation is two images taken exactly 13 years apart. Clearly visible is the expansion of the red glowing filaments of ionized helium and hydrogen, as well as the swirling blue-white cloudy material illuminated by synchrotron radiation. Also note the proper motion movement of the yellow-orange star in the lower left corner of the image. Many more details including animations and annotations available here.

Lunar Eclipse in Tokyo

On the evening of 2022-11-08 I successfully observed and photographed the total Lunar eclipse from the capital of Japan.
This eclipse had a once-in-a-lifetime speciality as during the event the Moon was conjugating with planet Uranus. And by viewing it in East-Asia, the Moon passed in front of the planet, so there was a Uranus-eclipse by the eclipsed Moon.
The photos were taken in every 15 minutes. Watch in HD! :)

An ion tail disconnection event captured in a 3-hour time lapse of comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF). 360x 30-second images integrated 10 at a time into 36x 5-minute frames. Captured with RASA 8, ASI2600MC Pro, IDAS LPS-D3 filter, and riding on an Avalon Instruments M-Due in the Big Rock Observatory in Duvall, WA, USA

The last seconds of sunset
The last seconds of sunset - the last flashes of yellow, green, blue light line the horizon like pearls!
How does the sun disappear in the last few seconds of sunset? On the evening of January 31, I saw this wonderful sunset on Hehuan Mountain, which is 3,000 meters high. When the sun has fallen below the horizon, we can continue to see sunlight refracted from below the horizon because of atmospheric refraction. In the last few seconds, when there is only one line of sunlight left, because of the different refractive indices of various colors of light, we can see different colors of light—yellow, green, and blue are arranged on that line like pearls! In the last 1 second, they disappeared one by one in front of the camera. First, the yellow light with the smallest refractive index disappears, then the green light, and the blue light with the largest refractive index disappears last. Because the intensity of blue light is the weakest, and the eyes are more sensitive to yellow-green light, so the naked eye could only see a green light disappearing in the sky. What was left at the end was the cheers of everyone who saw the magical green light with their own eyes!
The first section of the film shows the last 28 seconds of sunset, and the second section shows the last 8 seconds of sunset in slow motion. How the pearls of different colors disappear can be seen more clearly in the video.

Full moon at 100% 🌕

Setting up the platform for Jeff to spin on the mountain was the most challenging setup I've ever done for the moon crazyness - it was an absolute madness bc it weight is 200kg!

Kind thanks guys!
